Manassas Woman Convicted of Animal Cruelty

Manassas, Va. (AP) - A Manassas woman could face up to two years in jail and fines after being convicted of mistreating her pets.

An animal control officer found three pit bulls in Karen Morris's muddy back yard in December. The officer testified there were empty food bowls, piles of feces and one of the hungry dogs was eating the carcass of a third pit bull.

Morris' lawyer argued she didn't own one of the dogs and thought her son removed another.

A judge Thursday convicted her of two animal cruelty charges, leaving her property in unsanitary conditions and failing to license or vaccinate two of the dogs.

She'd been previously convicted for allowing her dogs to run free.
